Fantastic and unique experience!

Our guide, Rashim, was excellent. The food and cultural history we got along the way were superb. My kids, ages 14 and 12, were so in to it. I lived in NYC for 9 years but I never got this kind of rich information or so many great tips for eats in Chinatown! I enthusiastically recommend this tour. Thank you!

Great tour and good food

We had a great tour even though it was close to 100 degrees. Our guide made sure that we was inside in the AC as much as possible and still gave us a very good introduction to Chinatown. We had a very good and enthusiastic guide who knew what he was talking about. If we ever come back to New York we will go on another tour we the same company.

Our tour happened during the heat wave so we were glad that we were mostly inside in the air conditioned restaurants! Our guide Burt was great! He was funny, informative, courteous, and kept us in the shade as much as possible when we were outside. I learned a lot about the area and I know we'll be going back. Especially to a "concealed" bar that he showed us. The food was delicious and I can't even begin to pick a favorite from what we ate. This was our third food tour (previous tours were Greenwich Village and Chelsea Market) and I would rate this one possibly the highest of all so far. As luck would have it, we were only five on the tour so it was "cozy" and very nice.

Loved the Dim & the Duck. The tea shop and health store were nice and had a great variety of products. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic......the store owners & employees were very welcoming & our guide had a good relationship with everyone.

Raheem did a great job and can't wait to go back to Chinatown and try some of the great places that he talked about.

Not only did we have delicious food but very interesting learning about the culture. Our guide Raheem was superb! I was traveling with my 17 yr. old granddaughter and she enjoyed the day as much as I did. If I would have had more time, I would have booked one of the other tours as well. Highly recommended!

Loved the food and learnt a lot - would have liked a little bit more about history and culture to compliment the tour.

Great guide & great food.

This was our second tour with Foods of New York. The weather was really hot so this particular tour, with its sit-down format, was ideal - it enabled us to escape the sweltering heat and get to chat with other folks in the group. The guide was informal but informative. We learnt a lot about the neighbourhood, its history and the cuisine. Throughout the guide was attentive to the needs of the group. We really liked the sauces & dim sum that started the tour - the one with Chinese chives was our favourite. The food on the rest of the tour was good - and the visits to the tea shops were interesting. We returned to China Town later in the week and explored more of the area. If we come to to NYC again we'd repeat the same tour - thank you!

Food and Fun

This is my 3rd tour with this company and each one is better than the last one. The Chinatown Food Tour was a little different as it included 3 sit down courses, in addition to stopping at a few food spots, and of course the walking with all the history of the area. I especially liked the sit down part of the tour because we got to talk with the other people, who came from all over the world, in a comforatble and relaxed atmosphere. I highly recommend this tour to everyone!

Me and my boyfriend were visiting the city for the first time. He is a major foodie and really into food, food facts, and anything different. This tour was wonderful for both of us. Not only was the tour guide great but the whole set up and location of the tour was awesome. The food was great and a very nice was to see China Town. I would never go back to New York and not do a food tour. Highly recommened!
